Meet Me and My New Wheels !!!

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

I bought a bike tonight - a beautiful champagne coloured bike - and I love it although I need to get used to it.

I rode it part way home and wobbled all over the road, thank goodness no car was behind me I would have been toast !!! I also learnt that I can't seem to raise my leg very high to get it over the very low bar !!! What's up with that? So between lack of balance and lack of agility I have some work to do !

Here's the pics below :

So I am hoping to burn up some miles, safely of course and on a bike trail - I will walk the bike on sidewalks, I dislike people who ride their bikes on the sidewalk and expect pedestrians to go out in traffic to get out of their way .. so I won't be one of those. Here in Vancouver there is a bylaw - NO BIKES ON SIDEWALKS... but who inforces that ?? Certainly not our city ...

Anyway now I will work on the agility so I can get on and off, right now I am hopping on and off and well it aint' very pretty LOL - the helmet is though !

Thanks for dropping by :)

    Lookin' good! And I'm with you on the sidewalk riding - I dislike it when people ride their bikes there. We also have a bylaw, but it's not enforced, either...

    oh, my! You will be a danger to everyone! LOL Practice some high marching steps to get that leg limbered up for stepping over the bar. Enjoy our new toy and you will get better each time you use it. And I agree, walking it on the sidewalk is the safest and best way to get back home.
